I just finished coloring this mandala about a half an hour ago. It's so nice to have the time and the motivation to start, finish, scan, and post mandalas! As much as I love Summer....I truly love September and back to work full time creating, expressing and sharing my work. It's so fun to sit down with a fresh design and fill in the shapes with colors. Color changes everything! My family was attracted to the cool blues, greens and purples in this piece. I just love it because it's crisp and new and I'm creating with a light heart today.

Hello, and welcome to my website. My name is Jody Cooke and I am a designer living in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. I have been an artist in some form or another for over thirty years. My new passion is mandalas! Since I learned about them in January 2013, I have created over 1,500 (black and white) of these circular patterns and over 160 full color. Some are very small and sketchy, most are 8 inches in diameter, currently I am creating on 24" x 18" paper (transitioning into a Lotus Mandala series as of summer 2017) and one is a 24 inch square acrylic mandala painting on canvas. Definitely not my preferred medium..but I gave it a try!
